High-end bathroom brand, Roca, has teamed with Zaha Hadid Architects to create the Roca London Gallery, a 3600 sq. feet palace devoted to the arts. Located close to the Chelsea Harbor, water was a major design inspiration as depicted by the undulating forms found both inside and outside. The similarity between the facade and interior serves to connect the building as one complete structure. Although the main walls are gypsum panels, the meandering surfaces are fiber reinforced concrete, allowing the sight-lines of the interior to remain open. Speaking on the project, Hadid commented, “Our work imbues architecture with the intricacy and beauty of natural forms. using a formal language derived from the movement of water, the Roca London Gallery has been eroded and polished by fluidity; generating a sequence of dynamic spaces carved from this fascinating interplay between architecture and nature.”
